Obtained Info Text
Speak to the Scholar in the Marseilles Archives. A collaboration between da Vinci and someone else? It's true: when da Vinci was in Florence, he was supposedly an apprentice at Andrea del Verrocchio's studio... He must have done at least one collaboration with Verrocchio at the time.
Speak to Da Vinci at the Da Vinci Estate in Marseilles. My collaboration with Mr Verrocchio? That brings up a lot of memories. Very well, I'm in a good mood.
Speak to Da Vinci again. I just painted the background and the angel on the left. It seemed like Mr Verrocchio liked it. He said "I leave the painting up to you. Now I can focus on my sculpting" and he laughed. Where is the painting now? Well, it's not my picture, it's Mr Verrocchio's. You'll have to find it for yourself.
Speak to the Scholar in the Marseilles Archives again. Focus on sculpting, eh... It's true that ever since that time, Verrocchio never again took up a brush. He may have laughed it off in front of Da Vinci, but I bet he was serious when he said that... Verrocchio's last painting is being kept in the Genoa church.
Visit the Genoa Church.

Use "Observe" and "Search" in the right hand cove near the front of the church.

You've discovered The Baptism of Jesus.
